The pattern I have utilised is individual and colourful just like anyone’s personality. My patterns are not made up of geometric shapes, I like to use organic shapes and for this project both the surface and subject go hand in hand.</p><h2>Artist Statement</h2><p><span style="line-height: 1.286em;">Kyle Pearson is an emerging artist from rural NSW.
